Look for programs whose pay out plans continue as long as person who joined under you is still involved. These residual payments can last for a long time. If you are in a really good one, these commissions can add up rather quickly.
Beware of illegal pyramids that rely on infusions of new members to pay commissions. In other words, it should be a product or service that stands on its own merits, and one that you believe in yourself. If you don't use product yourself, how can you honestly tell your prospects how great it is?
Not every program is a good deal. Remember, you are putting your reputation on line as well. That is why it is so important to get involved in a good one. While getting in on "ground floor" of a new one may be attractive, risk is a lot higher that it might not make it over long pull.
One of most successful people I know in this type of business, writes a weekly column which he distributes to his mailing list. He promotes this column quite heavily, and many people opt-in to receive it, who are not currently involved in his program. He keeps publication generic, and gives general advice. Of course, in author credits, he includes a short blurb on his program, and a way to contact him. He gets a decent share of new recruits as a result of this newsletter.
A good way to build your list is to send your articles to other publishers. If they publish your article, you have just gotten a free ad in their publication. It also helps build your credibility as an expert. It is important that you subscribe to newsletters you're going to send articles to since that will give you a feel for type they accept.
If you find right affiliate programs, and promote them properly, you too can join ranks of successful Internet Entrepreneurs.
